How To

How-To | Care for Wool Rugs & Blankets

Nov 17, 2014

The season of dinner parties and social gatherings galore is among us. Don’t let a wine spill on your wool rug or a smudge of chocolate on your throw distract you from the evening. With high amounts of wear from day to day use, chances are that these items are in need of close attention and care regardless of staining! Consider your blankets and rugs cleaned with our spot treating and care tips…

SPOT TREAT RUGS

Grease & oil-based stains

  • Wet the Wash & Stain Bar with tepid water and gently work it into the soiled area.
  • Lift the stain by dabbing the area with a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth. Do not use paper towels or certain sponges because they may leave behind residue.
  • Remove soap and dirt by wetting another cloth and wiping the area clean.
  • Repeat the process until satisfied.

Dirt, wine, and tannin stains

PRE-TREAT THROWS

Makeup, lotions, and oil-based stains

  • Pretreat the affected area with the Wash & Stain Bar, lathering the bar with tepid water and gently working it into the fabric.
  • Soak the blanket or throw in a bath of cool water and leave to soak for roughly 30 minutes.
  • Finish by machine washing with Wool & Cashmere Shampoo on the delicate/woolens cycle in cold water. Lay flat to dry.

Chocolate, wine, coffee, and tannin stains

  • Pretreat the affected area with the Stain Solution, applying it directly to the stain and gently working it into the fabric.
  • Soak the blanket or throw in a bath of cool water and leave to soak for roughly 30 minutes.
  • Finish by machine washing with Wool & Cashmere Shampoo on the delicate/woolens cycle in cold water. Lay flat to dry.

ROUTINE CARE

Rugs

Deodorize

Freshen

  • Steam wool rugs to rejuvenate fibers and kill bacteria and odor sources. The temperature of the steam will work to clean without damaging the fabric.
  • If possible, hang the rug outside where it can breathe. If the rug is too large to be moved outside, simply place it in a closed off room and open the windows.

Throws

Deodorize & Freshen

  • Deodorize and freshen wool blankets and throws between washes by spritzing with the Wool & Cashmere Spray. This formula not only has anti-bacterial properties, it’s also scented in our beautiful Cedar scent.

Remove Lint & De-pill

  • Routinely brush wool blankets and throws with the Cashmere Brush to remove lint and rejuvenate the natural oils in the yarn.
  • For heavy-knit blankets, de-pill with the Sweater Stone gliding gently across the fabric.
